Valentines from a Rockstar

If by some chance you're arriving here to today because you saw me on Martha Stewart today, then WELCOME!!!  I hope you enjoy my blog and spend some time peeking around.  Today's project is for Valentine's day.

I wanted to come up with a new fun Valentine for my son Rex this year.  I had so much fun making last year's.  I wanted to include a photo again this time around.  Here's what I came up with.

They were easy to make.  Here's the how to:

I dressed Rex us a little more funky than normal and took some pictures of him with my guitar case.  He happened to be a total ham that day, which was perfect.  I had a hard time deciding which picture to use.  Here are a couple others.  (I can't help but share them :)

Oh yeah.  It's the smoulder.

I added some text to the pictures on Picnik.  (Yes, I know.  It's going to be closing in a few months, but hopefully they'll carry the whole thing over to Google + and not just parts of it.)

I printed the pictures as 4x6s because that made them bigger than the pop rock packet.

Then I cut a piece of paper to match the size of the picture.  I also cut a little half circle out at the top so it would be easier to slide out the candy.  I stapled 3 sides.  It forms a pocket for the pop rocks to slide into.  Then I let Rex practice writing his name and his friends' names on the back.

And that's it.  They kind of make me giggle.

And we're ready for Valentine's Day.  I think he'll have fun giving them out to his buddies.

Thanks for reading.  See you tomorrow.
